Patient discussion about bicycling

Q. is biking good for as jogging? what do you gain from it any way? health speaking ...

A. As far as it regards the heart, the main aim is to reach your target heart rate (pulse), while the way to achieve it is less important - jogging, biking, etc.

Biking has benefit (not including jumping like running) but also has its drawbacks (issues concerning testicles in long rides). It'd be best, before you start any exercise program to consult your doctor - he knows your body and its diseases better than us, and therefore will give you more suitable answers.
